Why has Vidant Family Medicine – Roanoke Rapids Decided to Become a Patient-Center Medical Home (PCMH)?
We believe that the PCMH model will help us to provide high-quality care to all of our patients. By positioning your physician to provide, oversee and coordinate all the care you need, the PCMH model seeks to strengthen the physician-patient relationship.
Coordination between you and your providers also leads to better health results; fewer errors such as drug interactions, fewer duplicate tests; and quicker, better communication.
What are the benefits of a PCMH to me?
- Personal Provider: Each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal physician/nurse practitioner/physician assistant. Your personal provider leads your care team.
- Whole Person Care: Your personal provider is responsible for providing all your healthcare needs or taking responsibility for appropriately arranging care with other qualified professionals.
- Care is Coordinated/Integrated: Your provider and healthcare team will coordinate your care with other elements of the healthcare system, such as specialty care, hospitals, home health agencies, and nursing homes. They are also equipped to integrate this care with your family and any public or private community services that you may currently use or that may be of benefit to you.
- Quality and Safety: By centralizing your care in one place, the potential for errors is decreased. By putting the focus on the patient, the quality of care is enhanced.
- Enhanced Access to Care: Open scheduling, expanded hours and new options for communication between patients, their personal physician and practice staff makes is easier and quicker to get the care you need.
